Broken Turbo Shaft...HELP

I tried to take my compressor wheel off to install a wicked wheel and SNAP. The shaft broke. I need to get this vehicle back on the road. Does the shaft need to be pressed out and a new shaft pressed in? What about the bearings? Is there a how to writeup or instructions floating around on the web that someone can direct me to.

I can't have this down for another week. Anyone know where along the front range of Colorado, I can get a shaft with the exhaust wheel installed?

Thanks

Find another Turbo, welding is not possible, disassembley and shaft replacement are possible but, if you're in a hurry I wouldn't bother learning something like this (it's not simple) just find a turbo (new or used) and be done...

I have no intention of welding on it. I just like the cheaper alternative of replacing the shaft and not the entire turbo. I did see a writeup on a turbo rebuild. If the shaft had no play, can I reinstall the components inside, or once pulled apart, should be replaced? The local warehouse for Garrett has no shafts and no rebuild kits. I did see a shaft on ebay though.
